N1 - Funding Information: optical klystron configuration which had achieved lasing over the wavelength range of 1000-5000 A ; this Soviet result using an optical klystron configuration is believed to be the shortest wavelength operation of an FEL to date . Other optical klystron experiments, planned or in progress, were described by LURE and by the Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) . Ongoing harmonic FEL studies to achieve coherent vacuum UV radiation were described by Stanford University. Planned studies of harmonic FEL operation at millimeter wavelengths were described by NRL . Finally, fundamental studies of FEL stability, mode competition and optical guiding were reported on by a number of groups including those at Columbia University, Imperial College, BNL and CREOL, while important numical simulations were described by groups from LLNL, FOM and LANL among others . In summary, the 10th International FEL Conference revealed FELs as a maturing technol- ogy with unique high power capabilities over a huge wavelength span from UV to mm wavelengths . Applications being addressed include medical research, materials research and plasma heating . The conference was characterized by a high level of anticipation of further rapid advances in FEL science and technology, and of new important application areas. We would like to express our appreciation to the sponsors of the Conference : the U .S . Office of Naval Research, the U .S . Air Force European Office of Aerospace Research and Development, Tel Aviv University, the Weizmann Institute of Science, the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities and the Israel Ministry of Science and Development . We would also like to thank the conference secretarial staff for their excellent work ; in particular, thanks go to Hazel Fischer, Ann Rehwinkel and Ana Weksler .
